Thus my still poor mpg (10 of a mixture of city and highway) should not be a result of computer memory, right?

Also a stupid question, Jeep Cherokee Sport is an XJ model, right?

Thanks again Brizzle!

I want to know how you get 6-8 mpg. that is just awful. I get 16mpg on 35s.... as for your problem, either take the cover off and redo the gasket with RTV silicone and your muffler is probably just rotted. no worries.

Hey thanks for the reply first of all.

I know, right? Awful! When I was driving in city, it last 12 miles for the gauge finger to move from one to the other (which is supposed to be 2 gallons). I know it's inaccurate so I filled the tank and did the math later for a mixture of city and highway, the result was like 10.5...It's still not acceptable...right? maybe I should do some flushes?

BTW, is it gotta be alright if I don't drive it for three weeks? some says I should leave the tank almost empty and inflate the tires a bit over the ideal pressure level.

Thanks again
